Real-time analysis in mining conveyor belt – CNA for mining

15 February 2024

In this video, Malvern Panalytical introduces the controlled neutron analyzer (CNA), an open analyzer installed below the belt, providing real-time oxide analysis. Designed for minerals applications with wide conveyor belts and large material size, it is suitable for measuring run-of-mine material, typically after primary crushing, and other belt-based process streams. The CNA offers crucial insights into the composition and homogeneity of these streams, driving sorting and blending operations to avoid processing low-grade ore and reduce natural ore variability.
